        Mrs. Margaret Lamb Dies</line><line /><line>On Friday morning at quarter of ten at her home in Evansville, Wisconsin, occurred the death of Mrs. Margaret Lamb after a lingering illness which lasted several months. Every aid which medical science could give or suggest was tried but all to no avail. When told her end was near she manifested no fear and only regretted that she could not be spared to comfort those who were so dear to her. She was devoted to the service of God and in her dying moments rejoiced that she was going to a better world, to a bright and happy heavenly home where sorrow never enters and parting is unknown.</line><line /><line>Mrs. Lamb's maiden name was Margaret Norton. She was born on the seventh of May, 1844 in Canada.</line><line /><line>When eighteen years old she moved with her parents to Rochester, New York. Then she moved with her parents twelve miles east of Rochester, town of Parington, Monroe county. At the age of eleven years she moved with her parents to Brooklyn, Green county, Wisconsin, where she grew to womanhood. </line><line /><line>On March 21, 1865 she was married to Mike Costalo. He was killed in the battle of the Wilderness. She then married William Eggleston, five children being born to this union. Later she married Edward Lamb, February 11, 1878, five children being born to this union.</line><line /><line>In 1906 she moved to Evansville, where she resided until her death.</line><line /><line>The funeral services were held at the Catholic church at this place, Father McDermott officiating. At the conclusion he paid a fitting tribute to the deceased and offered the relatives the only consolations that availeth aught at this sad hour of their bereavement--the hope of life beyond the grave. The remains were laid to rest in the Maple Hill cemetery at this place, followed by a large number of sympathizing friends.</line><line /><line>The deceased leaves three sons, Fred and Charley Eggleston, and James Lamb, all of Evansville, Wis., and five daughters, Mrs. James Kingdon of Attica, Mrs. William Farnsworth of Dayton, Mrs. Edgar Sperry, Mrs. George Roby and Miss Nora Lamb all of Evansville, Wisconsin.</line><line /><line>The pall-bearers were the sons-in-law: Mr. Harry Loomis, Mr. Edgar Sperry, Mr. George Roby, Mr. William Farnsworth, Mr. George Keylock, Mr. James Kingdon.</line><line /><line>Weep not that her toils are over,
        Weep not that her race is run.
        God grant we may rest as calmly,
        When our work, like her's is done.
        Till then we yield with gladness
        Our mother to Him to keep
        And rejoice in the sweet assurance
        He giveth His loved one sleep.

        Mrs. Margaret Lamb Dies</line><line /><line>On Friday morning at quarter of ten at her home in Evansville, Wisconsin, occurred the death of Mrs. Margaret Lamb after a lingering illness which lasted several months.
